LED light therapy masks emit light at specific wavelengths and frequencies that can penetrate the skin.
Each light color targets specific cells and so each has its own results.
Blue light is used to fight acne, red light stimulates collagen production and white light reduces redness from inflammation.
What does LED light do for your face?
When used consistently, over time, LED lights are thought to penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin, such as fighting acne-causing bacteria, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles. LED Light Therapy uses colour wavelengths of visible light which have specific skin benefits.
Do LED lights really work for skin?
LED means light-emitting diode. “It works by emitting infrared lights (causing heat) in different wavelengths/spectrums, which have different skincare benefits,” says Engelman. “Amber light stimulates collagen and elastin. Depending on the light, your skin is going to respond differently.
Is led mask effective?
On top of that, the masks can also be helpful in combatting acne. “Red and blue light treatments are effective because they bring oxygen deep to the skin and help kill the acne bacteria,” Dr. Jaliman explains. However, a combination of both is usually ideal for most skin types, says Dr. Jaliman.
Does LED light reduce wrinkles?
“LED light therapy can stimulate collagen production, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles, as well as eliminate acne-causing bacteria, which improves skin clarity.
